Five reasons to purchase a Scotland Limited Partnership.


1) Prestige reputation and tax transparency. Learn more.

Scotland is a part of the United Kingdom (UK), which is a leading global financial and business centre of the world. Hence it is a jurisdiction, well known and good choice for tax planning. SLP internationally is known for standard system of taxation and is not being referred to as “tax heaven”, since it is a part of the UK.

2) 0% (Based on residency of members and place of business)Learn more.

SLP with non-resident UK members and with no business activities within UK are not regarded as UK-taxable entities. Income of the SLP is treated as being income of its members, therefore taxable in the country of the members’ residency on a pro rata bases, based on their interest in the SLP.

3) Nominee General Partners and Nominee Limited Partners are allowed and widely used. Learn more.

Appointing BVI, Belize or Seychelles as general partners to the SLP, brings all new perspective, as when these partners, receive income abroad, are tax exempt in UK, while liable for local taxation system, which in these jurisdictions is at 0% rate. With a proper corporate structure, such vehicle becomes a perfect business tool.

When general and limited members are corporate vehicles, incorporated in jurisdiction, where filing of members, directors, owners is not mandatory, identity of those behind these vehicles is not publicly accessible.

4) SLP is its own legal entity Learn more.

SLP can own its own property and conduct legal matters in its own name, not in the name of its partners. SLP can also sue and be sued as a separate legal entity.

5) Minimum capital, which must be paid on incorporation, is only 2 GBP

A step-by-step guide to registering a Scottish Limited Partnership.


Step 1. Submitting order form.

To configure your company, see its precise cost, decide which options you need and which you don`t, please start by playing with our online company configurator. This is basically a step-by-step process, which will lead you through all the necessary questions and options.

Submitting your form through the online configurator does not oblige you to purchase, neither does it ask for any payment or card details.

The same form allows you to choose the ‘shelf’ company.

Once you are done with the configuration, the form will enable you to submit your desired configuration to us. We will then take it from there.

Step 2. Name check.

The name of a Scottish L.P. company must end with the words Limited Partnership or the suffix "L.P.".

Company names containing restricted words such as "Bank", "Insurance", "Trust", "Assurance", "Building Society", "England", "British", "European", "Irish", "National", etc. will not be permitted, except if appropriate licence is obtained. The words "International", "Holding", "Group" are subject to individual acceptance by Companies House.

The name check procedure normally takes 1 to 2 days.

Step 3. Payment.

Once we have all forms and needed documents for company formation, we will require payment, before we can physically proceed with the company formation. We accept bank wire, card payment and payments in cash in either of our offices.

Step 4. Company registration.

We can proceed with company registration, as soon as we have all of the above – name is approved, documents for registration received, payment received.

Step 5. Corporate document preparation.

There is a whole set of corporate documents that need to be prepared and finalized for the SLP. Including the partnership agreement, which is a custom made document for each SLP, therefore the time scale for all documents preparation, including courier delivery of documents to client, is approximately 2,5 to 3 weeks. Shelf companies are available when time is of the essence.
